June 2018 Upper Kittitas County District Court Case
Mark W. Garka's client was pulled over because his headlight was out. His Client performed the Field Sobriety Tests (FST) on the roadway in snow and in icy conditions. He blew a 0.16 BAC in the police station and was arrested and charged with Driving Under the Influence (DUI). A BAC over 0.15 is considered a DUI with enhanced penalties in Washington State. Mark W. Garka negotiated with the State Prosecuting Attorney and the charge was reduced to Reckless Driving.
